Organization: Marin Municipal Water District
Date and time: Saturday April 20, 2013 9:00 am – 2:00pm
Meeting location: Azalea Hill parking lot, off of Bolinas-Fairfax Rd
Project description: Come one, come all to celebrate Earth day on the Mt Tamalpais Watershed. First, join us on a hike near Pine Mountain to the Little Carson Trailhead. Our tools for trail restoration will be waiting at the trailhead for us. We will then begin the journey of clearing the winding trail down to Little Carson Falls. Work will include tread maintenance, diversion of water on trail, and some vegetation cutback. This area is infamous for its lush vegetation and that it is one of three breeding spots documented on the watershed for the Foothill Yellow-legged frog. We will work our way down the trail from 9:00-12:00pm, take a lunch break near the falls while we listen to one of our well-trained frog docents to discuss the Foothill Yellow-legged frog. Our docents are very knowledgeable of this cute amphibian and know how to spot them easily as they bring spotting scopes with them. Breeding season for these frogs is in April and May, so we should be able to see them on the falls!
What will be provided: Guided hike, breakfast snacks, coffee, tools and gloves, and inspiration
What to bring: Reusable water bottle, lunch, hat and/or sun screen, sturdy shoes, and layered clothing.
